Preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation

Data protection laws across the EU are out of date and barely fit for purpose. Additionally, each member state has its own regime, creating a nightmare of compliance for businesses in the middle of the second decade of the 21st century.

Keeping on top of rapidly changing technology is one challenge – keeping on top of regulation and compliance issues is a whole other challenge for IT professionals.

One key change is on the horizon: the creation of a new data protection framework for the whole of the European Union. This seeks to create a harmonised regulation that is fit for purpose in today’s fast-moving IT, data and compliance landscape.

Yet despite the fact that the proposed new rules are probably just over two years away from being implemented, IT professionals are worryingly unprepared for the change.
